212 – Pau d’arco
In Ayurveda Pau d’arco can be used to treat a wide range of conditions in which bitter herbs are used. Typically, bitter herbs reduce Ama and may reduce or remove bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites from the body. In South America Pau d’arco has been used to treat arthritis, inflammatory conditions, fever, dysentery, boils and ulcers. Pau d’arco may also support immune function by removing Ama from the systems of the body.
